Fluor completes module fabrication for Fort Hills Energy oil sands

Fluor Corp. said it fabricated and shipped 358 modules to the Athabasca region of Alberta for the Fort Hills Energy LP oil sands mining project. Fluor has an engineering, procurement, fabrication, and construction contract for the utilities portion of the project.

A proprietary modular approach meant that much of the traditional site work was done in fabrication yards. Fluor’s Supreme Modular Fabrication Inc. (SMFI) joint venture fabrication yard in Canada and three other Canadian yards built the modules.

The Fort Hills project, an open-pit truck and shovel mine, is owned by Fort Hills Energy, a partnership of Suncor Energy, Total E&P Canada Ltd., and Teck Resources Ltd.
